EXPLANATORY  PREFACE. 


This  book  contains  all  the  records  of  the  Eastern  Precinct  Commis- 
sioners 1.S12  to  1.S17;  and  the  Western  I'recinct  Connuissiouers  1810 
to  1817. 

The  Connnissioners  were  authorized  to  lay  out,  grade,  level,  open 
streets,  etc.,  in  new  iirecincts  of  Baltimore,  East  and  West  of  Jones' 
Falls,  which  were  contiguous  to  Baltimore,  and  were  annexed  in 
1816. 

The  Conunissioners"  work  was  in  anticipation  of  an  extension  of 
the  City  boundaries  and  was  mostly  performed  before  the  actual 
extension.  Tliough  their  duties  were  identical  in  theii-  resi)ective 
precincts,  they  were  separate  and  distinct  l)odies. 

The  Precinct  Commission(>rs  often  worked  with  the  City  Conunis- 
sioners wlien  the  grade  of  a  street  to  be  established  extended  in  both 
the  City  and  Precincts. 

This  book  completes  the  Records  of  Baltimore  City  from  172!)  to 
1813,  of  tliis  particular  character,  which  are  in  volumes  entitled: 

"First  Records  of  Baltimore  Town  &  Jonestown,  1729  to  17!)7." 

"Records  of  the  City  of  Baltimore  (City  Conunissoiners).  17!>7  to 
1813."

1817."  which  were  i)ublisbed  under  the  same  ausi>ices  in  the  order

The  Subscribers  met  agreeably  to  adjournment :  to  confer  on 
the  complaint  of  Wm.  Thorpe,  Simon  Barthe  &  Wm.  Allcock, 
who  agreeably  to  the  Law  in  that  case  made  &  provided,  think 
themselves  injured,  or  likely  to  be  injured  in  their  improvements 
by  the  Grade  Established  on  Cove  Street ;  by  the  Commission- 
ers—  the  subscribers  having  been  Sworn  faithfully  &  honestly 
to  determine  what  damages  Wm.  Thorpe,  S  Barthe  &  Wm. 
Allcock  has  or  will  sustain  from  the  Grade  affixed  by  the  Com- 
missioners &  if  any,  then  impartially  without  favor  or  affection 
equitably  to  assess  the  same  on  the  property  on  said  Street  bene- 
fited. 

After  taking  the  premises  into  Consideration,  the  subscribers 
are  of  opinion —  That  at  present  the  Complainants  have  not 
sustained  any  injury;  there  being  no  im])rovements  of  any  kind 
erected  on  the  property  belonging  to  the  Complainants.  But 
what  injury  the  Complainants  agreeably  to  the  words  of  the 
Law  "are  likely  to  sustain,"  the  Subscribers  have  it  not  in  their 
power  to  asscertain. —  The  Subscribers  are  nevertheless  of  opin- 
ion, that  by  the  Grade  as  Established,  the  Complainants  will 
hereafter  be  injured  ;  yet  the  Subscribers  cannot  point  out  what 
property  on  Cove  Street  is  benefited  by  the  Grade  Established ; 
on  which  an  assessment  should  be  made.
